Librivox please match reader to book
Far be it for me to criticize. However I feel a story should be matched with a reader whose voice is be suited for the book or story. I have heard Tom Weiss elsewhere and he is very good. But this book needs a female reader, preferably who is British and hence the accent. At the very least, I feel a collaborative of male and female readers(by chapter or audio clip number)whatever their national origin,is the best alternative,and in the main, is preferable to solo for a whole book. Very rare is the reader who excels at reading the entire book. But of course we know who they are at Librivox, names need not be mentioned...sigh

I agree with Mike's review - a good mystery and Tom is an excellent reader. This was my first taste of Le Queux, and I will be looking for more of his books and more readings by Tom Weiss.
All of the "whys" that our hero asked did get a little annoying - not the most engaging of dialogs, but the fact that people kept refusing to answer him kept me guessing throughout.

Lots of good twists and turns
The summary gives the general idea of the story. When you think the story is going in one direction, it changes up on you, which I like. I enjoy a story that keeps me guessing.
Tom W is an excellent reader, thanks for continuing to read Le Queux stories, he's a great author.
